‘The up-and-coming octet plays funk and soul like the titans of old, with thick grooves and horn blasts aplenty. The band matches the soulful baritone of Anthony Campbell--the 2003 winner of the "Today" show's "Superstar" singing competition--with slickly executed horn licks and groove-oriented compositions. What results is a spirited collision of funk, soul and R&B that can adapt to various styles and genres.’
-Bobby McMahon, Intrepid Rock Journalism

'Everyone on the Today Show really liked him’ -Katie Couric - CBS Host

Amazing performer! Captivating ! Great entertainer and voice!
-Dana Ferrier, Dodd Auditorium

‘What sets Third Stream Giants apart from your standard "let's get together and jam on some oldies" bar band is that they are unnervingly good. Their songs boast intricate and complex arrangements, and their players are more than capable of producing tight, well-crafted jams.’

"A big round of applause to D.C.'s hottest act, Third Stream Giants!"

"[The Giants are] rekindling the fires of funk and soul, it's almost hard to believe that a band as talented as Third Stream Giants has not broken out beyond being a regional band."
-The Free Lance-Star

What a talent, a pure performer.'
-Daniel Ceo, the UMW Bullet

“The band tends to work best with music aficionados, but when people pay attention, their reaction is, "I haven't heard anything like that before."
-Mike Zitz, Free Lance-Sta

‘With the impressive and uplifting “little big band” behind him, it is Anthony Campbell’s stunningly soulful baritone and high energy that will sweep you out of your mere mortal’s reverie and into a Third Stream awareness of what you have been musically missing. It is with little doubt that 3SG are indeed on their way to national recognition, so catch them while you can.’
-Lisa Reagan, Virginia Neighbor
